Have a Kenmore washing machine that is over 30 years old. It has been a great machine with very few troubles (timer & brackets had to be replaced). During the wash/rinse cycle, it seems to function normally, but does not pump all the water out of the tub during the spin cycle. I've been told it could be a sock or some other item stuck in the pump/hose or it could be the pump itself. I don't believe there is an obstruction in the pump or hose because when I manually turn the timer to the Spin section, it will pump some water out, but only for a few seconds and then stops. Given the age of the machine, I need to decide if it's worth taking the pump out and replacing it or if I should just buy a new machine.

If that is the only problem with it (works otherwise, not rusting, etc.) I can't see scrapping it for just the cost of the ~$30 part, especially if you can replace it yourself.
